Fourteen designers wrote articles for Fourth Edition. Remarkably, all three of the lead developers for Next -- Mike Mearls, Jeremy Crawford, and James Wyatt -- were among them. After analyzing the current designers' "before" articles, I will look at the other developers' articles, also by author. By grouping the articles by designer, I hope to get a sense of each designer's preferences and personal style.
